  • Overall, a great episode.

    Tonight's episode didn't have a whole lot of news, which was good in this case. They jumped right into a segment with "Senior Jackologist", Ed Helms. This was very well written in my opinion. Ed delivered the lines perfectly. You'll find some of the quotes from this segment in the "Quotes" section in the episode information.

    Stephen Colbert's "This Week in God" segment got a few laughs. One of his jokes completely bombed, which made it even more funny. You could see he seemed to be enjoying the segment.

    The interview with Newt Gingrich was excellent. I love it when guests have a sense of humor, and Newt certainly seems to. They discussed a wide range of topics, from Hillary Clinton to the south, from legislation to running for president.moreless

      Ed Helms: Well, ultimately Jon, if Jacko wants to avoid further flack-o from the media pack-o, he's simply going to have to stop having young boys in the sack-o. And also, make sure there's no touching of his... balls.
